The Letter Of John Sutherland, 1942?1956

Editor Bruce Whiteman

ECW Press | December 1, 1992 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review
From the beginning, John Sutherland recognized that his literary gifts lay in criticism rather than in poetry. His independence from the academy and his largely autodidactic training gave him a unique perspective as a critic of Canadian literature. What these letters document, beyond a purely personal struggle, is a period of great importance in the development of Canadian poetry (1942–1956), and it is above all the nuts and bolts of that development that they bring into keen relief: the economics of publishing books and literary magazines in the days before The Canada Council, and the difficulty, if not the impossibility, of trying wholly to live a life in literature at that time.
